Posted on 01/03/2014 1:38:42 PM PST by nickcarraway
A woman in Kuwait found the way her husband ate his peas to be such a shocking sight that she filed for divorce after they had only been married for a week. The woman decided that her husbands habit of eating peas with bread instead of a fork was an issue that they could not work out.
Thats not the only recent divorce that has nothing to do with infidelity, abuse or communication issues.
Another woman recently filed for divorce because of the way her husband squeezes toothpaste. We are always arguing, she reportedly told her lawyer. I keep telling him that he should squeeze in the end of the tube, but he stubbornly refuses and keeps squeezing it in the middle. He is so obstinate.
Its not always just the ladies
In another recent case, a man ended things with his wife because she wouldnt bring him a glass of water. After she told him that there was a servant who could do it, they had an argument and he told her their marriage was over.
One critical issue is that many spouses should use their engagement period to know each other well enough to decide whether they should go on with their union, said a Kuwaiti legalist. The traditional times when spouses really met each other after their marriage are over, so there are now good opportunities to know the future life partner and decide whether he or she is the right one.
Finally a light of sanity in the world. More power to ya pea lady!

I eat my peas with honey,
I’ve done it all my life.
It does taste kind of funny,
But it keeps them o my knife.
Imagine whirled peas!
Now just a minute; that's an entirely reasonable basis to shoot...er, divorce someone.
No way to have ap-peas-ed her in some way?
Wasn’t there a Seinfeld episode with this theme? (Only Jerry was the irritated one, of course.)
Ho hum the tune is dumb
The words don't mean a thing
Isn't this a silly song
For anyone to sing?
LOL that’s funny!!
I have a relative who eats his peas with catsup. Can't divorce a brother.
Yes, she ate her peas, one at a time yet she scooped her corn niblets, that what was so vexing.
Religion of Peas...
Somebody oughta invent cubic peas!
Supposed to stir them up in the mashed potatoes. Then there’s no slippage issue...
Why scoop when you can stab? Forks have tines for a reason!
That rhyme was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this too!
GEORGE: Oh, she’s got the hue. So, what’s going on with you and Melanie? I mean, I know you’re not getting married, but uh, things are happening?
JERRY: Well...actually, we kind of broke up.
GEORGE: You what?
JERRY: Well, you know, we were having dinner the other night, and she’s got this strangest habit. She eats her peas one at a time. You’ve never seen anything like it. It takes her an hour to finish them. I mean, we’ve had dinner other times. I’ve seen her eat Corn Niblets. But she scooped them.
GEORGE: . . . she scooped her niblets?
JERRY: Yes. That’s what was so vexing.
“The woman decided that her husbands habit of eating peas with bread instead of a fork....”
Oh. And I had visions of picking them up one at a time with a clear plastic Krazy Straw...
My mom used to love asparagus - she would cook it the normal way, either in boiling water or steam it.
Then she would strain it and put it in a bowl.
Then she would add about a cup of milk, mash it up, and start eating.
Practically made me hurl every time I ever saw her do it...
In the Three Stooges Moe would cover his knife with mashed potatoes and then use that to stick to the peas.
LOL! Thanks for the script. Yeah, I can still hear him complaining!
....she’s just pee’d he won’t eat mushrooms
I had an old boss that would do this in restaurants. He would grab a spoon and fill it with butter. He would then stick the butter in his mouth and then he would take a bite of bread/roll. At least a spoonful of butter with every bite of bread. By the end of the meal, I bet he ate at least a cup of butter.
Needless to say, he’s not alive any more.
It starts so innocently, with separate tubes of toothpaste, then separate bathrooms, then, inevitably, the separate bedroom chambers, each with it’s own key assembly. Actually, I have met many women who insist on having their very own bathroom, the lucky ones don’t even allow their children to enter “Mom’s Bathroom”. You’d better not be caught in there!
Well, you know how it goes; it’s never really one thing. First it’s the toothpaste, then the toilet paper, she turns around and sees socks on the floor and when she sits on the toilet and he’s left the seat up it becomes justifiable homicide.
Even when trying to stab they tend to get away (especially if you make the mistake of eating from a clean plate.)
He was just doing what Obama told him to do.
This woman obviously did not take marriage very seriously
Well, at least he didn’t mush them all up between the tines of his fork. Revolting.
What I like to do at home is pour them into a paper cup. That allows me to funnel them into my mouth so I can get a whole bunch of them at once. I wouldn't do that in a restaurant however.
Eating corn is difficult as well. Especially corn on a cob. Unless you are at a backyard barbeque, stay away from corn on the cob at the dinner table. Not only will you gross people out but you will get the corn stuck between your teeth and then you have to decide whether or not you are going to free it with your fingernail or hunt down a toothpick. Either option will not sit well with your spouse and could earn you a divorce.
First you dump the peas onto the mashed potatoes and then grab them with a slice of bread. duh.
exactly, especially if there is also gravy
How did your first wife die?
She ate poison mushrooms.
How did your second wife die?
She ate poison mushrooms.
Astonishing. How did your third wife die.
Blunt force trauma.
Blunt force trauma?
Yes, she didn't like mushrooms.
Its a well known fact that Polar Bears love Peas.
My kinda man!
PS Great video (wow!) and cute poochie too!
I hope that the High Court agrees with the defendant that peas are problematic.
I knew a woman in her 40s who was getting rather desperate to get married. She was a career type who had amassed a lot of money but evidently found herself alone in middle age. I asked her if she was ever engaged. "Yes," she said, "but I called it off." Err, Why?--"Well, I was talking on the phone with him and he put me on hold to take another call." She told him that since the other call was more important that she was, the engagement was over.
Lucky guy to be rid of such a woman. Later a friend of hers set her up on a blind date with a handsome doctor. I overheard her complaining later about the friend and the doctor. "Just my luck, he's gay!"
rats. beat me to it.
